EMILE ZOLA The prolific writer sends his thanks to an unnamed correspondent for Ballades Françaises Autograph Sentiment on Calling Card Signed: "Emile Zola" 4x2½. In French, translated in full: "With my hearty thanks for the agreeable package of "Ballades Françaises", an exquisite and powerful work". Emile Zola (1840-1902) is widely recognized as the founder of naturalism in literature. His last great work was the trilogy Les Trois Villes (The Three Cities): Lourdes (1894), Rome (1896) and Paris (1898). Zola is also known for defending French Army Officer Alfred Dreyfus, who had been convicted of treason (1894) and imprisoned on Devil's Island (1895). Incensed at the injustice of the conviction, Zola wrote a scathing letter beginning "J'accuse" that was published in the newspaper "L'Aurore" on January 13, 1898. Anti-Semitism had played a large part in the Dreyfus case, and after Zola's letter appeared, he was forced to flee France. He went to England, where he lived from 1898-1899 before returning to France. Pinhead-sized stain toward left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
